Book, review : 2 States - the Story of my marriage by Chetan Bhagat
Jump to navigation, common Sense says, a lot or a little? The parents' guide to what's in this book. Along with Elie wiesel's, night, this is one of the few books about the holocaust that views it through the eyes of a teenager. Reader's are resumes drawn inside what has become normal daily life for biography Dita - standing for hours in freezing cold to be inspected by the guards, dead bodies carried away from her barracks like so much trash, hunger that never goes away, the senseless brutality of the guards. Inside the novel's front and back covers are aerial photographs of the auschwitz-birkenau concentration camp taken in August and September 1944 that show the locations of the gas chambers, prisoner barracks, guard towers, and crematorium. So readers can put a face to the librarian of Block 31, a photo of a teenage dita Kraus (wearing a sweater with a yellow star) is included in her letter to readers at the beginning of the book. Positive messages, in the most violent and terrifying times, there will be people of all ages who show great courage and compassion and are willing to sacrifice themselves for others.
At the book risk of self-promotion, the first thing I thought of when I saw Retro cameras was my own book, digital Retro, which tells the story behind 44 classic home computers of the seventies and Eighties. The format may be smaller, but the presentation is similar with original product photography accompanied by a brief history and fact panels. I mention this only because i like the approach and had I written my own book on vintage film cameras, itd look a lot like this one. Theres no shortage of camera history books around, but few that look this good. Of those that do, retro cameras stands out for Wades curation, compiling a compelling collection of well-known and unusual models with great-looking product photography throughout and just the right amount of text to inform without becoming a dry reference volume. Recommended whether youre a collector, historian, camera geek or lover of a good coffee table book. Suffice it to say, its a great gift for photographers who love older cameras. Check prices on the retro cameras book. Buy the retro cameras book from.
can absolutely trust for the text for example, todd Gustavsons highly. The authors own personal experiences also inevitably play a part. I asked Wade about his selection for Retro cameras and wasnt surprised when he explained the choices came largely down to cameras hed personally handled as well as those he actually owned or had direct access to in order to illustrate everything hed written about. Its a decision that means some models may not be included, but those that made the cut are accurately and attractively presented. Inevitably the first thing any enthusiast or collector will do when faced with a book like this is to try to find models they own(ed) or felt strongly about. I only found a handful from my own history, including the pentax me super, Bronica etrs, pentax 67 and Kodak instamatics, but it didnt detract from my enjoyment of the book. I was reminded of so many Id seen or lusted after in shop windows or catalogue adverts, or spotted in the wild. I also appreciated Wades decision to stick to relatively recent history, thereby avoiding the need to cover ancient wooden boxes. Again this particular collection is aimed at what youre likely to find or would like to find when searching second hand shops or ebay listings.
But while its the pictures that draw you in, the text gives them the weight of well-researched history. The 285 page book kicks off with an article about camera and shmoop photography basics and ends with a section on retro accessories like light meters. The bulk of the book over 200 pages worth is devoted to the 100 cameras themselves. These are split into 11 categories: 35mm slrs, 35mm rangefinders, 35mm viewfinder cameras, roll film slrs, sheet and roll film folding cameras, tlrs, Instamatic cartridge cameras, stereo cameras, panorama cameras, miniature cameras and instant cameras. Each category consists of seven to fourteen cameras and for the sake of variety wade attempts to avoid featuring any company more than once in each, although some sections like instant cameras are inevitably dominated by key brands. Each category is also preceded by an article describing their technical highlights and what buyers of second hand gear should look out for. Theres some useful information here both for those new to or familiar with old film cameras, and it takes it beyond a pure history book. In a book like this, the question of model selection inevitably comes. When theres hundreds or even thousands of models to choose from, what criteria do you use to reduce them to a realistic list that can be published?
The Story of my life - english is easy for 10th!
Retro cameras is a compact and stylish hardback book that tells the story behind 100 vintage film cameras. Spanning a period of dillard 50 years, it presents each camera on a single page or spread with a brief but informative history, key facts and a selection of original product photos. Its pitched as a guide for new collectors of classic film cameras, but works equally well for camera historians not to mention anyone simply wanting a great-looking addition to the coffee table. Youll find familiar names here from Pentax, Olympus, polaroid and Kodak, mixed in equal measure with esoterics and rarities like mecaflex, Globuscope and Mick-a-matic. Author John Wade is no stranger to the subject. The Amateur Photographer columnist and former Editor of uk photography magazine has written a number of camera history books, but none ive seen that share the production values of Retro cameras. With its clean glossy pages showcasing Wades own original product photography, it looks great and begs you keep reading beyond a casual flick-through.
